It has been drawn to our attention that some members of the public have been contacted by persons who wrongly purport to be associated with Global and who are offering employment with the company. These persons often make use of an imitation Global letterhead which bears the company’s logo.
We understand that over the last couple of years many listed companies have become aware that their shareholders and / or members of the public have received unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning employment / business opportunities, share offers or investment matters relating to these companies
Global has a very stringent recruitment process whereby applicants are required to apply for positions through a structured recruitment process. The Company does not seek personal details for any potential employees via unsolicited emails.
If you receive any unsolicited contact from anyone offering you employment with, or shares in, Global Petroleum Limited, we recommend that you ignore it and delete the email from your computer.
The Company advises shareholders and members of the public to have due regard to this warning. Whilst the Company is unable to answer individual enquiries regarding unsolicited emails purporting to come from the Company, recipients thereof are welcome to send details of any such fraudulent mails to the company at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Identifying fraudulent emails:
Inspect the email address. At first glance, fraudulent messages can look like they are from Global but on closer scrutiny may have been sent from a hotmail/gmail or other public email account. For example, email@example.com is not a genuine Global Petroleum email address.
Inspect the URL of websites and links. Companies always use clear URLs like www.globalpetroleum.com.au/investors/announcements. "Scam" sites and links usually have long addresses that use special characters like &^%!*$£"
Review the wording. If it doesn’t read like a request from a legitimate company, it probably isn’t.
Avoid requests that sound vague, improbable or too casual, such as "our database has been corrupted, please re-send your details", or "recent legislation means we require this information".
Look for grammar and spelling mistakes. ‘’Scam’’ emails are often electronically translated from different languages, resulting in obvious spelling / grammatical errors and odd sentence structures.
Global Petroleum accepts no liability towards any member of the public who is defrauded or suffers loss as a result of fraudulent messages or ‘’scams’’.
